Course testimonials:

  • I haven't participated in any on line training before and I found it to be very good
  • The facilitator was great, engaging and very informative. The time went so so quickly and left me wanting more time with the facilitator to learn more. I have been to a lot of virtual online sessions of late and this was by far the best. I would be really keen to explore this topic more with this facilitator. This was a really positive and enjoyable session. Hats off, you really know your stuff and how to keep an audience engaged.
  • I would not hesitate to recommend Michelle as a trainer - this was one of the best training sessions I have attended and it as on Zoom! Even though it was conducted online it was interactive and engaging. I would love to do more training with Michelle.
